Minecraft Dungeons gets cross-platform support early next week. Finally, you’ll be able to play with your pals regardless of your platform choice.
Minecraft Dungeons is Mojang’s Diablo-lite hack-and-slasher. The game launched earlier this year to solid reviews, but you weren’t able to play with friends on other platforms That all changes very soon as the team is putting cross-platform support in early next week. Starting November 17, you’ll be able to play with all your friends, regardless of which platform you play on. Check out the announcement trailer below.

While Minecraft Dungeons might not be for everyone, it’s hard to deny the appeal of a dungeon crawler parents can play with their kids. It may be simple, but that makes it even easier to get younger players in on the fun. Plus, the team has continued to provide tons of post-launch support to grow out the content available to players.
The inclusion of cross-platform support is yet another feather in the cap for Minecraft Dungeons and Mojang. It’s worth wondering what this could mean for other first-party Xbox games going forward. Obviously, Minecraft is a bit of a different beast, but it does make the path a little clearer for Bethesda games to end up on PS5. Now, don’t take this as any kind of confirmation. This just gives those of us who aren’t getting an Xbox Series X a little bit of extra hope.
Minecraft Dungeons is available now on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. The cross-platform patch hits on November 17, giving you plenty of time to pick it up before launch. And remember, Howling Peaks, the next DLC pack is coming in December.
